The fire science degree is offered with our partner, the Maryland Fire and Rescue Institute (MFRI), the leading training system for all hazard response. Combined with other general education and emergency medical services course completion, the fire science technology degree will increase students’ abilities to be promoted in the emergency services field or get hired in the fire service.
This program will allow fire and/or rescue personnel to earn college credit for prior learning from completed fire service training. By earning the A.A.S, local fire fighters will have a path toward promotion at their current jobs. This program also provides a path for students who are in the high school CTE programs.
Job opportunities include positions as firefighters, fire officers, fire prevention officers, code enforcement officers, fire rangers, and crash and rescue technicians.
